Nikon Coolpix P5000: Compact Camera with Control

With a wide range of exposure controls and a comfortable and efficient design, the 10-megapixel Coolpix P5000 is an ideal everyday companion for experienced photographers.

The P5000has a nice selection of modes, including High ISO and Anti Shake, either of which can be used to reduce blur in low-light or action shots. You get a lot of flexibility when shooting at the wide end of the camera's zoom range – 36mm – with ten aperture settings. This combined with the P5000’s effective lens-based optical image stabilization and its maximum ISO of 2000, make it a versatile low-light photographic tool. The camera includes a hot shoe and a variety of flash settings as well. Whatever the lighting situation you're dealing with, you’ll appreciate the P5000’s high-quality LCD- particularly its wide viewing angle.

In testing, I found that colors were realistic, and the automatic white balance didn't produce any color casts. Video quality was quite good for a compact camera, although audio quality was less than ideal.

This camera shares some of the shortcomings of its competitors, including noticeable image noise at higher ISO settings and less-than-optimal shooting speed. Its appeal lies in its combination of advanced features- including the external flash support - and its pocketable, comfortable design.
